Capacity Sensor for Belt Conveyor Systems Based on Planar Metamaterials.
In: META 2010, 2nd International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic crystals and Plasmonics, Cairo, Egypt, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

A new capacitive sensor concept for the monitoring of belt conveyor systems has been developed using a metamaterial transmission line with two operation modes. When the line is used as a resonator the mean permittivity and velocity of material on the sensor can be determined. In the second operation mode the sensor is used as a transmission line and by measuring the broadband input impedance in the LH band a capacitive profile along the line can be evaluated by applying different methods such as time domain reflectometry, the perturbation method or network synthesis. The areas of application of these types of sensors are transportation of materials in conveyor belts for several industrial processes where the velocity and position of the Material under Test (MUT) are of interest.
